go back to the government shutdowns in the clinton years where they say, the scatle buries canned afford a christmas tree this christmas. they love this story, and it is usually blatantly lying and emotionally manipulative and it's the sort of thing where people goes you know what, think i'd rather watch jeopardy. there's more facts on that show. >> neil: oh. will, to the corner, at one point today tenant liesingly close to an all-time high, but is it nothing but a sugar high? what does us mean when it happens in >> neil: not today. still shy of an all-time high but we got close. the dow seeing green for the month of february nevertheless and has been -- investors celebrating. market watcher larry is worry else is driving this. and melissa is in texas. larry, your sense of whatever will propel us to that record high -- it's when, not if -- is all the wrong stuff. explain. >> well, investors were remind not to focus on the number, whether it's the dow or the s&p. instead focus on the fundamentals can the foundation of the economy. why were there and what is the support for that ral
with the press in president clinton impeach. considers the e-mail inappropriate and says some of the columns from the "washington times" prompted similar threats. >> i was told most threatened by the editor if he continues to run my columns he would lose, the reporters would lose white house credentials. that is unfortunate. it is. >> the bogs of national journal described a run-in with the official. >> woodward was granted broad unfettered access to the white house in first term. hard to dispute he is under attack in the second. >> former advisor and 2008 campaign manager david plouffe hammered woodward as has-been in a tweet last night. watching woodward in the last two days is imagining my idol schmidt pitching again. perfection gained once is rarely repeated. plenty of reporters have received angry call and e-mail from the staff and it began long before he was elect and never stopped. what is surprise manage in this case it's finally woodward and this time he went public with it. >> bret: you and i have both received e-mails like that. >> sure. >> bret: we have heard stories about this white

, but it's a very close to the clinton administration and worked with the bush administration and yet we find out he was involved in supporting terrorism internationally, surrogates arrested in noticing 23 years of prison. i'm asking what could be the prospect that somebody get back in the country and from a political standpoint, their arrest could potentially, like 79 if he started talking about the people he worked with on capitol hill, the people he met with then work with obviously would be very politically very same. what if you have hypothetically someone working closely with the president. we know we had a number of a known terrorist organization he did in the white house last year, even as secretary napolitano is sitting where you are could not answer she even if i was happening when it is in the papers. by the time she gets to the senate, she said the check was fÊted three times. there were things that could end up high politically proving if somebody gets back in the 90s state, someone might look for a way to see they never testify. we are talking hypothetically, but i wanted

what is going to call the oranges and maintenance budget. during the clinton years, when i was a brigade operations officer in fort bragg we felt the cuts there because we didn't have enough money to repair parts for your equipment. did you not have enough for ammunition so you can go out and properly certify and train your crews and artillery officer so these things are going to be felt in the united states military. which if you understand the preeminent responsibility of the federal government to provide for the defense so we can have the lib bertie for the people. and it was for the budget and the democrats and republicans voted nobody wanted to see the 30 million wasted. why can't we did that with all the other incredible waste in this town. >> well, it's interesting to say, you would think that a guy that served 22 years in the united states military sitting on armed house services committee he would look at it as a sacred cow. here is something near and dear to me, i have relatives in the military, but we could find saving. if we had every member of the senate and ho
at the studies funded by the clinton administration. they could not find any evidence that those types of bans -- >> let me give you some, let me give you some. let me give you some, mr. lott, you just said what you said, let me answer you. in 1996, as you know there was a horrible mass shooting in australia, 35 people killed. they brought in extensive gun control and bans in australia, in the ten-year period leading up to that there were 18 mass shootings in australia, do you know how many there have been since the gun ban has been brought in? >> depends how you define them, i know how you define them. >> very easy to define, more than four people. do you know how many were in australia since they brought in the gun ban? >> 1996. >> you know how many in new zealand? >> how many -- >> you're going to say searzero >> how many mass shootings have there been in a country before they had a massacre and changed their laws -- how many of their been since 1996? >> now you're going to let me talk for a second. >> answer the question. >> i just did. >> how many since 1996. >> i have already said the co
represent a significant change from that of the first obama administration and secretary clinton? >> well, i couldn't say it's a huge leap because it's consistent with what the administration has been doing already for a year. the 60 million that secretary kerry has said will be allocated to these programs builds on $50 million that was already allocated for similar programs provled in training the opposition that is the political opposition and giving them communications equipment and so forth. this new step, though is important because it will build capacity on the part of the co-locale counsels that are governing areas of syria that the regime is unlikely to return to this is the beginning of post-assad syria in places. it's essential that those governing in those areas and are responsible for the health and welfare of the people living there have the capacity to carry out those tasks and responsibilities. >> suarez: steven hide man, there was a public announcement, a widening of the materiel being sent over. what does this look like to you? >> i think it looks like more of an important s
in the obama administration since the first day, he was in the clinton administration for almost all eight years, he's known bob woodward for a really, really long time. >> two decades. >> these are two people at the top of their professions battling it out over a public issue. frankly i don't see the e-mail as anything that we should all be shocked or superconcerned about it. i mean, every one of us can produce an e-mail from a white house, it doesn't matter of which party, that is far more ominous than what woodward got. >> what do you think? >> i think the bigger picture is -- the woodward thing is fun to talk about for a couple of days but we're on the verge of the perfectly dysfunctional political equilibrium with the sequester that may perpetuate itself indefinitely. this is happening now, the budget stuff at the end of march where the government may run out of funding, you've got the debt limit again coming back in may or june. so, this is going to stretch on for months in this kind of dysfunction that's insane. >> and, of course, we've been talking about the pope. we have ten secon

to return the top marginal rate that it was under president clinton, 39.6. that produces now in the 10-year window a certain amount of revenue. that is positive. the fact is, the loopholes we have identified are similar to some of the ones that the speaker of the house have identified, as worthy of closing, not good for the our tax code, not good for our economic fairness. those are the ones we believe should be closed. additionally, in our proposal we put forward a provision that could cap deductions at 28% for millionaires and billionaires that would produce a certain amount of revenue. a combination would achieve the level necessary of revenue as part of an overall deficit reduction package that, includes savings from entitlements. it would complete the job in getting $4 trillion deficit reduction over 10 years. that proposal, as the president made speaker boehner, most people recognize as an effort by the president to compromise, make tough choices for democrats. it is still on the table. we hope that the speaker would consider taking up that proposal. it was yesterday or the day before
